PHYS1112 - Dr. Bill Dennis
Beginning in Spring 2017, Dr. Dennis' PHYS1112 lecture will be supported by Peer Learning Assistants (PLAs). Approximately 150 students are enrolled in this course which meets in one of the SLC's large auditoriums. Seven PLAs for spring 2017 attend lectures, which are interspersed with problem solving activities. PLAs have previously completed the course, and bring their perspectives to current students to support learning and participation. In addition to attending lectures and interacting with students, these PLAs attend a weekly pedagogy seminar, sharing their experiences with PLAs from other disciplines and honing their mentoring strategies and skills.
